        Iola Leroy, or Shadows Uplifted

      Philadelphia: Garrigues Brothers. 1892. First. First edition. Brown cloth gilt. Frontispiece portrait of the author (occasionally lacking). Introduction by William Still. A fine copy with just the slightest of bumping at the corners and hinge repaired, the gilt bright and unrubbed. Small stamp of the Anti-Slavery and Aborigines Protection Society on first blank, and beneath that Inscribed by Harper in pencil: "C. Impey. Street Somerset 1893 from the Author (and Publisher W. Still)".The only novel by Harper, better known for her poetry and essays, this was long considered the first novel to be published by an African-American woman, until Henry Louis Gates, Jr. advanced the cause of Harriet E. Wilson's Our Nig (1859).Although this novel contains many conventional elements, it also concerns itself with the personal independence of women of color, and particularly of the race in general. The protagonist, the daughter of a wealthy white father, is unaware that her mother is not only mulatto, but also the property of the husband. Iola and her brother and sister lead lives of privilege in North Carolina and at an expensive boarding school until her father dies, when her uncle claims them as slaves. Soon liberated by the Union Army, she offers her services as a nurse, and attracts the attentions of a white doctor, who discovers she is of mixed race, and encourages her to "pass" for white, which she rejects, setting off to seek her parents accompanied by a light-skinned black doctor instead. Iola commits herself to the education and furtherance of her race, and particularly of the freed slave, but is especially adamant about maintaining her status as an employed woman, saying at one point: "I think that every woman should have some skill or art which would insure her at least a comfortable support. I believe there would be less unhappy marriages if labor were more honored among women." Iola is also strongly in support of the temperance movement and in the principles of the Women's Christian Temperance Union in particular. While the novel has a conventional ending -- Iola marries the black doctor -- she continues her educational endeavors and social work as a married woman.The inscription in this copy is to Catherine Impey (of Street Somerset) a British Quaker activist against racial discrimination who founded Britain's first anti-racist journal, Anti-Caste, in 1888. The journal focused largely on issues in America. In 1893, she formed The Society for the Recognition of the Universal Brotherhood of Man, with the American Ida B. Wells, who visited her in Britain to campaign against lynching.This is the first of only four 19th Century editions. In addition to this first edition, there was a second edition published by Garrigue Brothers in 1893; the third edition, published by James H. Earle, which is dated 1892, but is stated third edition, and was probably published after 1893; and a fourth edition, also published by Earle, in 1895. OCLC locates 28 copies of the first edition, a surprisingly large number, all but a handful are found in the libraries of traditionally black colleges, where they would have been of particular interest, and more readily available at an early date. However, the list of institutions that do not have a copy of the first edition is impressive. A single inferior copy at auction in the past 25 years. We have occasionally, if infrequently, seen copies of the later printings, this is the third copy of the first edition we've seen in 30 years; in beautiful condition, the only signed copy of which we are aware, and a pleasing association. .

        Bismarck kommt!,, aus der Reihe:"Politischer Bilderbogen" Nr.1

      Dresden, Verlag der Druckerei Glöß, 1892 - ORDENTLICHES EXEMPLAR, außen leicht unfrisch, die Knickkanten stellenweise fast unmerklich hinterlegt "Die zentrale Aussage des Bilderbogens läuft auf die Verächtlichmachung von Parlament und Regierung hinaus. Die `Judenbörse` mitten im Reichstag, Chaos, Rauferein und das feige Verhalten der meisten Parlamentarier beim Auftreten Bismarcks denunzieren die Institution und das Parlament insgesamt. Bismarck wird als Repräsentant des von Regierungspolitik und Judentum bedrohten und vom Parlament im Stich gelassenen Bauernstandes präsentiert. Dass nur die Antisemiten, als Schutzmacht der Bauern, den `Reichsgründer` freudig empfangen, rückt sie in eine politische Nähe zum Exkanzler, die es in Wirklichkeit nicht gab. Wie viele andere Parteien und Verbände des `nationalen Lagers` versuchten auch die Antisemiten vom Bismarck-Kult zu profitieren, um sich politisch aufzuwerten und Respektabilität zu verschaffen." (Thomas Gräfe, "Antisemitismus in Gesellschaft und Karikatur des Kaiserreichs. Glöß` Politische Bilderbogen 1892-1901") Die Reihe erschien in 33 Folgen zwischen 1892 und 1901. Der Verlag schreibt dazu: "Dieser Bogen hat Aufnahme im Bismarck Minusmuseum zu Schönhausen gefunden. Er schildert mit drastischem Humor Bismarcks Eintritt in den Reichstag, wo eine grauenvolle Panik ausbricht". - Eines der Blätter bezeichnet "S. Horn" (sonst nicht weiter nachweisbar, sicher das Pseudonym des Zeichners), die Texte erschienen anonym, werden aber verlässlich dem Dresdner antisemitischen Schriftsteller Max Bewer zugeschrieben. Sprache: de Gewicht in Gramm: 0 (aufgefaltet ca. 50 x 64 cm), gefalteter Bilderbogen

        Histoire de L'Art Decoratif de XVI Siecle a Nos Jours

      Henri Laurens, Paris 1892 - Heavy folio-sized, 40 by 32 cm, 15.5 by 12 inches. 15 lbs., with slipcase. vii, 336 pp, with 60 plates, 48 of which are color chromolithographs, and several of these are two paged. A magnificent survey of the decorative arts, touching on furniture, glass, porcelain, faience and ceramics, enamel, metalwork, fabric, etc. A truly magnificent and majesterial work, and this is a copy that is fully commensurate, with its half purple morocco over marbled boards, which are themselves unusually thick and substantial. Perhaps the one minor defect is that the spine leather has been sunned to a brown, but the difference in color with that on the boards is unlikely to disconcert. Gilt edges all around, and immaculate within. With slipcase of cloth and morocco trim.

An important technical photographic journal of the time published under the supervision of Hermann Wilhelm Vogel (1834 - 1898), one of the most important photographic chemists of the 19th century. Several text illustrations including cameras and related apparatus and devices. Contains numerous illustrations including actual photographs (all tipped to plate), photogravures, photo-lithographs, collotypes and half-tones. This issue contains an unusual color halftone plate which is called a "Chromotypie." Major plates are: "Winterlandschaft aus dem Rabenaueer Grunde bei Dresden" photograph, "Aufnahme aus dem K. Schauspielhause zu Berlin bei Magnesium-Blitz-Lich" photograph, "Von Anthropologen-Kongress in Danzig, 1891" photograph, "Portratstudie" photograph, "Il Lago del Mandrome" photograph, "Svartidden-Gletscher in Norwegen" photograph, "Kostumstudie" photograph,"I Fulmini di Brenta" photograph, "Chromotypie" color halftone printed directly on the page and tissue guard protected, "Portratstudie" photogravure, "Am Landwehrkanal in Thiergarten zu Berlin" photogravure, "Monentaufnahme aus Capri" photogravure, "Lm Thiegarten" photogravure, "Portratstudie" collotype, "Auf dem Lande" collotype, "Mandolinata" photo-lithograph, "Mai" photo-lithograph, "Moment-Aufnahmen aus der Kreisstadt Jampol in Podolien, Sud-Russland" photo-lithograph, "Portratstudie" photo-lithograph and "Strandszene aus Helgoland" photo-lithograph.

One photograph is 1/2 loose from the linen strip attaching the plate to the binding. A couple of pages have tears but none into the text area. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Adventure of Silver Blaze

      Strand Magazine 1892 - Quite possible the only surviving copy of the rare HARDCOVER edition of this historic publication, and possibly, of any single issue of the Strand Magazine containing a Sherlock Holmes story. It is the December, 1892 issue of the Strand Magazine, which contained the Sherlock Holmes story The Adventure of Silver Blaze. The Silver Blaze is certainly the most famous story ever written about a race horse, and one of the greatest Sherlock Holmes stories. In this story, Holmes utters the infamous line referring to "the curious incident of the dog in the night-time," to which the Scotland Yard detective objects, "The dog did nothing in the night-time." And Holmes responds: "That was the curious incident." This is a special hardcover edition of the single issue, with a gold stamp marking the issue with a gold crown and the words "Royal Edition." In addition, the volume in inscribed by the author of the first article. Very good in cloth covers, comes in a custom-made slipcase. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
